Hi Arjun. A good close up of this Jewel beetle. Taken with good detail and bright colours. We can see its back markings so well. It standsout from the darker green leaf. You just lost the focsing on the topof the body. But still a good pictures. well taken TFS.

Hi Arjun,
Interesting species with beautiful metallic colors.
Regards. Ferran

Wonderful this lovely beetle.
Great colors and details.

Nice immage,interesting insect.Regards.Alin.

this is good composition wise, but the subject isnt well in focus, and looks over exposed and soft on focus. it is actually a Jewel "Bug" of the family Scutelleridae, in the order Hemiptera.
